The mission of Old Glory Honor Flight
is to offer World War II veterans a memorable, safe and rewarding tour of honor to our Nation's Capital. However, bringing these veterans that fought so hard for our nation to see the memorials in their honor is not our only duty. We strongly believe that our organization should do all it can to preserve the honorable, self-less and heroic stories of freedom.
is dedicated to doing just that. We do this by inviting veterans to speak at local schools and events so that they can share the stories of The Greatest Generation with those of younger generations. Educating the youth about the sacrifice veterans made for America is of utmost importance.
Another goal of Operation Legacy
is to create a book that compiles the stories of veterans and their wartime experiences. Each veteran that has gone on their tour of honor with Old Glory Honor Flight will have a chance to sit with a volunteer interviewer and share their story. By doing this, veterans, their families and all generations to come will have a work that forever preserves the stories from one of America’s finest moments in history.
Old Glory Honor Flight
needs your help in achieving these tasks. Veterans willing to speak at schools or share their stories, schools that would like to welcome veterans to speak, and qualified volunteers interested in interviewing veterans and recording their stories are encouraged to contact us. We may be reached by phone at (888) 635-9838
or you may use the contact us
form. Operation Legacy makes Old Glory Honor Flight unique in that our organization not only honors veterans now, but will devote ourselves to forever preserving the history of liberty and freedom.
